Fourth Annual Report on Quarry Reclamation

On June 26, 2012, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors approved the 2012 Reclamation Plan Amendment (referred to as RPA) for the Quarry. RPA Condition of Approval #8 requires that the County prepare an Annual Report summarizing compliance with the RPA and the associated conditions of approval.
This is the fourth Lehigh Permanente Quarry RPA Annual Report (AR4) and provides public documentation of Quarry compliance for the monitoring period 2015-2016. Section 1 provides an introduction and overview of the content of AR4. A description of current operations at the Quarry is provided in Section 2. Section 3 provides a summary of compliance with the conditions of approval, with additional information regarding compliance (aerials, maps, site inspection information, and technical reports) provided in Appendices A through E. Lehigh is currently in compliance with the 2012 Reclamation Plan Conditions of Approval and Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program. Documentation of condition of approval compliance, as well as the previous annual reports, can be found on the County’s website at http://www.sccgov.org.
